Police in Hanoi have detained a Chinese national for using fake ATM cards to steal money from different banks.
Feng Hai Qiang was arrested Wednesday night, while trying to withdraw money from a booth in Thanh Xuan District.
He was carrying 14 fake cards, equipment for producing the fake cards, and VND6.5 million (US$305) in cash.
Feng admitted to belonging to a gang that had stolen more than VND100 million in the past month using the cards.
Major Ngo Minh Quang from the Hanoi Police Department's High-Tech Crime division said the group hacked into the accounts of Vietnamese ATM card holders and used their information to create clone cards.
The police are looking for Feng’s accomplices.
